Rest is a weapon. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus stood up and said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." It is really important that we experience the rest of partnership with God. You are invited into a life without fear, without anxiety, without worry, without panic. You are invited into a life where you never need to react to something because your life is geared to responding to Someone. - Graham Cooke, Overcoming Negativity Through Rest

Why are people leaving churches?

We've lost sight of the power found in our true identity as the light which manifests in a radical love without which all else is found worthless, as Paul wrote. Ignorant of who we are, our own self-limiting beliefs sabotage us and keep us in darkness every day. But that can change today.

You don't have a light. You ARE the light. And it isn't little. That light is never compromised. Our view of it, however, is blocked by a false identity to which we cling. As we begin to see who we are, we are astonished by our beauty because that light shines bright. Our lives in this dimension change and we demonstrate a love that is otherwise unknown by us and by the world. The kind that holds no record of wrong, without which no doctrine, creed or belief means much, as Paul also writes. As we are known for that kind of love, the church will thrive. And yet we don't truly know ourselves as that light which is love.

Fear is the mechanism in the human soul by which we attribute power to something. God invented it to give us wisdom, but far too often it is used against us. - Bob Hamp

When Jesus was moved by compassion, it was not just a feeling he had, but an understanding and conviction of what those people meant to the Father. - Shawn Bolz, Translating God: Hearing God’s Voice for Yourself and the World Around You

behind anger,
behind humor,
behind hurt,
behind fear,
behind mistrust,
there's ALWAYS a story.
